Aaron Boone's bullpen decisions, or lack thereof, let Game 3 get out of hand
Every aspect of the Yankees from the starting pitching to the bullpen to the offense to the defense to the manager was an embarrassment, and now as a result, the Yankees are facing elimination.
An email exchange with Michael Hurley of CBS Boston to break down the ALDS
Everything is set up for the Yankees now in the ALDS, and if they screw it up, it will be a complete letdown. They have favorable matchups on the field and they have the Stadium crowd behind them.
The Giants gave away another winnable game and now their season is on the brink of being over
The game should have never come down to a 63-yard field goal to possibly destroy the Giants’ season. In typical Giants fashion, the Giants simply gave the game away, and the officials did their part as well.

Andrew Rotondi of Bronx Pinstripes joined me to talk about the Yankees’ wild-card win over the A’s, Aaron Boone’s clean slate after advancing to the ALDS and a look ahead to the Red Sox.
After the 2004 ALCS, I can't handle another postseason loss to the Red Sox

The Yankees provided a stress-free night at the Stadium in the one-game playoff
If I knew the AL Wild-Card Game was going to be that easy to win, I could have saved a lot of time and energy over the six-plus months complaining about the Aaron Boone Yankees.
The Rangers are far from being a contender the way they were three and four seasons ago. It’s going to be a long road back to regaining that status, but it had to start sometime.
